redirect deleting my session?

I'm using the following to move to a new page

echo '<META HTTP-EQUIV="Refresh" CONTENT="0; URL=applied.php">';

does this delete the $_SESSION array?

typical not, if you use session_start() also on applied.php

very odd, my session is being destroyed somehow

here's the code
      print_r ($_SESSION);
      echo '<META HTTP-EQUIV="Refresh" CONTENT="1; URL=applied.php">';

then at the start of applied.php i have

print_r ($_SESSION);

i can see the session, then when the redirect happens i just see Array ( ) Array ( )

very odd?
